Can Thyroid Problems Cause High Blood Sugar?

Share on facebook

www.DrHagmeyer.com So here are 6 ways that blood sugar problems interfere with thyroid function. #1 Dysglcyemia stresses the adrenal glands which in turn stress the pituitary gland which is the master control center for all hormones. The pituitary glands makes TSH #2 Dysglycemia weakens and inflames the digestive tract- this can impact how Thyroid hormone is converted. That T4 to T3 conversion. (your Thyroids worst enemy) #3 Dysglycemia breaks down immune barriers of the gut- This can lead to Hashimotos disease. #4 Dysglcyemia induces hormone imbalances, detoxification and metabolism- this too can impair T4 to T3 conversion leading to Low T3 or Elevations in Thyroid Binding globulin. #5 Low blood sugar creates a fight or flight response this can cause problems with the Adrenals but can also cause an elevation in Reverse T3. #6- has more do to with the effects of low Thyroid- but low thyroid slows down the absorption of glucose, it also causes insulin to break down slower- both of these scenarios will keep blood sugar high and affect the pituitary gland. for more information about natural treatment options visit website: https://drhagmeyer.com/conditions/thy... connect with us on fa

Thyroid And Blood Sugar Relationship

article In order to function properly, your body needs energy. Blood sugar, also known as blood glucose, is the primary source of fuel for energy production, particularly for your muscles, brain, and other parts of the body. In addition, blood sugar is a building block for bigger molecule structures and plays a major role in your health and wellbeing. Changes in blood sugar levels affect the metabolic processes and affect the entire body. Since thyroid problems are common as well as problems with blood sugar, it is impossible not to wonder if they could be connected to some people. You’ll find more info about this important subject below. Thyroid and high blood sugar High blood sugar, or hyperglycemia, is a common health concern affecting millions of people. There are two main types of hyperglycemia[i]: Fasting hyperglycemia – blood sugar levels higher than 130 mg/dl (milligrams per deciliter) and it usually occurs when a person doesn’t eat or drink for more than eight hours Postprandial (after-meal) hyperglycemia – blood sugar levels higher than 180 mg/dl about two hours after the meal. That being said, nondiabetic individuals rarely have blood sugar levels higher than 140 Continue reading >>

    Hyperthyroidism - BG rises in a non diabetic?

    Hi all, long time no see!
    My mother was recently diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, her numbers coming out over twice the max 'normal' amount. She's only just started taking pills for it, so far things aren't really improving but we're hoping for a good change real soon!
    My question is, can an overactive thyroid raise blood sugar levels in a non-diabetic? She's always had perfectly healthy BG results until now. Even now it's nothing tragic - her A1c was 6.3, which many of us would be proud of but I know it's a little high for a non-D.
    I'm pretty sure it's just the thyroid acting up seeing as it's affecting her whole metabolism - but just hoping someone can confirm that for me. And will it all settle down once the pills are doing what they should? Anything else I should know?

    It is possible it could raise it a little, however according to my endo not likely. She should also have herself checked for diabetes or pre-diabetes. I have Grave's disease and when I had high BG last year, before I was diagnosed, I was convinced it was because my Synthroid was too high and I was consuming more sugar to compensate for the high metabolism. It turns out, being an auto-immune person, I actually had Type 1 diabetes. The symptoms are similar in the beginning to an over active thyroid.

    She's being sent for a GTT (ugh) so we'll see how that goes. I'm going to offer to go with her, I want to be there to support her - and also just see how it's done as I never had one myself!
    Also I'm going to her place for dinner tonight so I'll take my spare meter and do my own little GTT, testing before & a couple of times after we eat.
    6.3 isn't that high for a non-diabetic is it?
    I would not wish diabetes on anyone, and I'd freak if Mum got it! She's just had the test to see if her hyperthyroidism is auto-immune, so that's a result we're waiting for. If it is there's more of a chance of her prospective diabetes being T1... I think we'd all prefer T2, with an A1c like that she'd be able to control it well with diet & exercise as she's already pretty smart when it comes to nutrition.
    My diabetes has come through my Dad's side of the family - no trace of it at all in my Mum's (huge!) family. So I'm thinking that so far the odds are good for this to just be an oddity because of her body going a little nuts.
    Then again, maybe I'm in denial, because I really can't handle the thought of my Mum having to go through everything that I go through!

The Full Article Title:

BACKGROUND Hypothyroidism causes many metabolic abnormalities as well as multiple clinical symptoms. Some studies suggest that blood sugar may be affected in hypothyroidism and levels may increase. Indeed, it has been noted that patients with diabetes who also have hypothyroidism may have higher levels of Hemoglobin A1C (HBA1C). This test is done to diagnose and monitor control of blood sugar by patients with diabetes. An elevated HBA1C usually indicates worse control of diabetes. This study was done to look at the effect of thyroid hormone treatment on HBA1c levels in patients with hypothyroidism. This study was also done to look at the effect thyroid hormone treatment has on the diagnoses of pre diabetes and the control of diabetes after treatment. Anantarapu S et al Effects of thyroid hormone replacement on glycated he n non-diabetic subjects with overt hypothyroidism. Arch Endocrinol Metab. September 25 2015 [Epub ahead of print]. This study was done at a large hospital in India. Patients who were newly diagnosed with hypothyroidism were studied. They were at least 20 years old. Blood tests were done before starting the thyroid hormone and 3 months after the tests showed normal Continue reading >>

Why Low Thyroid Symptoms Can Be Affected By Blood Sugar Levels

Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC, Shelby Township, Macomb County Metro Detroit Area Doctor Shares How and Why Hypothyroid Symptoms Can Be Affected by Blood Sugar Levels Let’s Take A Look At The Important Role Of Balanced Blood Sugar Levels And Your Low Thyroid Symptoms Proper Blood Sugar levels are critical for anyone with low thyroid function. Normal blood glucose levels medically have a broad range of anywhere from 70 to 105. Functional or optimal blood glucose levels are 85 to 99. According to the American Diabetic Association, a blood sugar level reading of 106 to 126 is called, “Insulin resistance,” and anything above 127 is diabetes. I know you may be thinking, I don’t have diabetes. Here is the thing, you don’t have to be diabetic to have blood sugar problems. Your body does not like to have the range for blood sugar too high or too low. Anytime the range gets out of the normal functional range (85-99), you start to get inflammatory chemicals released in the body. These inflammatory chemicals are called cytokines and they are not a good thing. The events that are triggered by inflammatory cytokines are like a domino effect that is difficult to stop and can lead to autoi Continue reading >>

    Finally an answer! Hyperthyroidism causing my blood sugar to rise

    Hi Guys,
    I just wanted to share with you what an ER doctor found out. Last Saturday I went in with a bad headache, sweating, shaky , and high blood pressure which I never had. Ive been so frustrated that i can't control my blood sugar. I am eating very very healthy on a low carb diet. Numbers just kept creeping up. The Er doc did blood tests and my thyroid was undetectable. He said that can cause blood sugars to rise due to too much sugar being released and my body in a constant hyper state. My regular doctor never caught this and kept putting me on higher doses of metformin and started me on victoza. Nothing was helping with weight loss or lowering my blood sugars. Yes being hyper for some people can cause weight gain. oooo lucky me
    We are lowering my thyroid meds and I am hoping this will help my blood sugar. I was on a huge dose due to graves disease. All the symptoms of hyper thyroid are present. I just wanted to share what was going on if someone else may have thyroid and blood sugar issues. Also hypothyroidism can cause blood sugar spikes. I will keep you update ! Hopefully this new dosage will help!
